MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this thesis is to ascertain to what extent America's popular magazines are fulfilling their responsibility in arousing the public to the importance of education for its youth. The writer has attempted to discover which magazines publish the most articles on education; what is the extent of this magazine coverage; what are the viewpoints expressed in magazine articles on education; and to what extent do educators themselves write articles for the popular magazines. The list of those magazines used in this survey have been limited to those with over 2,000,000 subscribers with the exception of Redbook and Parents' Magazine. Time is excluded from analysis because of its extensive coverage of education. Educational journals and secular magazines also have not been used in this survey [TRUNCATED]
